This document demonstrates how a community backbone organization adds value to place based interventions and initiatives by strengthening social fabric.

"In the Connected Community Approach (CCA), a community backbone organization (aka a Local Integrator) leverages local assets, skills, aspirations, talents and resources from a wide range of actors to effectively mobilize to action. A Community Backbone Organization convenes, facilitates and shares knowledge across sectors in a neighbourhood context."
